palpable fear and that is something that can be addressed by the obama administration. if the president could assure gun owners that they are not going to take away their guns. >> people say it all the time. when the president says that, well, we don't believe that. especially since he has been so demon identifieding demonising for so long. but i still think. i have a number of friends, i have seen them post on facebook. the government will never come and take my guns. the administration will go further to reassure them. for some of them, it may slow down how many weapons they could buy but at the same time they would still have access to firearms for hunting and self defense. the divide between most gun owners and the nra leadership and the more active members of the nra is that something that they believe but only say in the selective environment is they want to have enough fire power to fight police and military forces. >> frank smyth thank you for joining me tonight. some more unmasking of the nr are a is next. tom sellek has been with the nra for years. is he a man of courage or do
lights the project to the obama administration. the new route would minimize the impact on the environment and stimulate the economy. the state department has to approve the project since it crosses the international border with canada. the pipeline's future is still in doubt. john boehner in a statement said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there's no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay the project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. the obama administration pushed back a decision on the project until after march. >>> according to some commit polling, benjamin netanyahu and his political allies have won election in tuesday's israeli elections. he will get a third term as president but his power is diminished after his party lost about 11 seats. >>> also overseas this morning, british prime minister david cameron made a critical speech on the uk's rocky relationship with the eu. cameron proposed a bold referendum to allow british voters to dec
recommendation of the joint chiefs of staff, the obama administration will announce formally tomorrow that the ban on women in combat is over. they had been making some progress in this direction, recently opening up the special operations aviation command to female pilots, and last year opening uabout 14,000 positions in the military that had been previously off limits to women. but this announcement could open up 230,000 new jobs to women over the course of the next year. the various service branches will make their own plans for how to do it. if there are individual specific jobs that they still want exempt for women, that they want exempt from this new policy, the service chiefs can ask for that. but that will not be the expectation. the priority, of course, is still military readiness and combat effectiveness above all. but they are making this move, starting tomorrow, to make serving equally recognized, equally. to clear the way for women in combat. joining us now is one of the women whose legal case on this issue may have helped push the military to this decision. she is captai
. and there's a lot of frustration among republicans as just a policy matter that the obama administration is not doing more to support the opposition there, not intervening a little more in terms of giving support to the rebels and he will probably answer questions about that, and generally questions about the arab spring overall, what's going on with egypt, what's going on with morsi, those problems ought to be at the forefront. >> different also because he has already been a presidential candidate. and i'm wondering, you know, in terms of contrasting it, ron, yesterday with hillary clinton, a lot of people interpreted some of the answers she gave as looking ahead to 2016. john kerry has wanted to be secretary of state. it's no big surprise that this is a role he has coveted. but for people out there who don't follow politics as close as we might, they might ask a question, why. here is a guy who has been in the senate since 1984. he's been a presidential nominee. why this, why now? >> well, there's two jobs he's always wanted. first, he wanted to be president of the united states and he
. the congress has not fully funded the obama administration request for embassy security, and, two, more funding for some of the governments in the region that need to be stronger to protect us. she pointed out congress has blocked funds that would have us assist the libyan government so, responsibility of security is the host government's responsibility. we rely on them. and that militia group in benghazi failed us on september 11th and 12th, so we need to reenforce the ability of these governments to protect our embassies and consulates in 275 different locations around the world. >> well, that raises a point, michael lighter, if we should be in 275 locations. we don't want to retreat from the world, but basically according to the review board that admiral mullen and pickering went through, they looked through the videos and say this host government local militia just turned tail and ran before the attack, or as the attack, was taking place. >> i think what we saw in libya was a slowness on behalf of the state department to adjust to very, very different circumstances in libya. and during the
it and get away with it. >> in april 2011, the obama administration released through joe biden actually new federal guidelines on how i believe colleges should be responding to these kinds of allegations. and they included speeding up the investigation, offering the investigations or video to the local police, has that changed? do you know if that has been a significant driver of any difference here? >> you know it doesn't seem like it is. just today we learned that unc has a dean that recently retired, accused the school of basically forcing her to under -- misrepresent the number of sexual assaults on campus and say it was much lower than it was because they didn't want their school to look bad. i think what we're dealing with here, there is so much interest in putting up images, that simple little tweaks are not doing the job of getting things better. >> thank you very much for being here tonight and thank you for your work on this. >> thank you. cheating, denied he was a doping ringleader, didn't admit to bullying, and seemed emotionally incapable of sympathy for the people whose lives
's worked out pretty well for the obama administration in a lot of different areas. >> now, jamal, a good manager knows how to deal with his team. and you know the president's team well. he goes to different people to do different things. what is the key to joe biden's role and how it applies to the overall obama team and the obama administration? >> that's exactly right. i look at the president as the quarterback of the team and he's the hub and everybody else is the spokes on this wheel. jarrett is reaching out to other business ceos. and neighbors is dealing with congress. but i think vice president biden plays a very key role inside the administration. he understands how the town works. like michelle was saying he hugs people and grabs them by the shoulders and looks them in the eye, that sort of stuff. he's also a guy the president has an extraordinary amount of confidence in. he could go in any room and speak on behalf of the administration. he's actually carrying a message the president wants delivered. that's an invaluable resource for the white house. >> now, michelle, vice presi
from his camp. and it's not clear that that camp is going to reach out to the obama administration, that that camp is interested in a peace offering even if the economy is in free fall. it might be convinced that its own survival is intrinsically linked with a conflict with the united states. so even if he's reaching out and he has an intended message of one, it's unclear if that message is going to be received. in the middle east the idea of winning and losing is a little different. there's a much longer historical perspective. the muslim brotherhood, for example, doesn't see this election by morsi or other muslim brotherhood gains as a victory. it's a step on the road to establishing a world as it existed before the collapse of the caliphate, before the disaster, as it sees it, of all the world war i agreements. so it's about winning battles as opposed to winning a decisive war that's going to have a decisive peace. >> richard, you're optimistic this might get through? >> i think i am -- >> i mean steve. >> i think richard is absolutely right. we don't know ultimately how they'll
're that bad. >> as the obama administration builds up for the legislative battle, a new poll shows 56% of americans favor stricter gun laws. and the same poll shows the national rifle association with a higher approval than hollywood. >> the nra's had some good days and bad days in this. and actually that depends on how you look at it. even when the nra has a bad day. and the media is calling them too aggressive. that's a good day for the nra, that usually ends up working in their favor in terms of membership. >> joining me now is los angeles mayor antonio villaraigosa. it's great to have you with me this morning. and the president is going to have two very big opportunities to sell the country on his proposals about gun violence. first the inaugural address on monday and the state of the union address. as we mentioned, he is turning obama for america into this organization for action and vice president joe biden made this promise to you and your colleagues at the mayor's conference yesterday. i want to show everybody. take a listen. >> we're going to take this fight to the halls of c

're talking about the role joe biden has played and will continue to play in the obama administration. in some ways it's an odd pairing. the vice president was running against barack obama. what do you think we're going to see in this next term? i don't want to get into gaming out of 2016. we're -- >> thank you. >> we can take it a deep breath but i think there's -- it's been notable to me from a political permanent that the first two big initiatives of this year of 2013, the president has had vice president joe biden help. it was the president presumably who directed joe biden to open up a line of negotiations with mitch mcconnell and that was widely reported. when the deal was struck, they was to the benefit in terms of representational capital o'and with the gun task force as well. what does that indicate to you? >> it indicates what we've been talking about. the vice president has 30 years of experience and he has a wide variety of experiences. both in foreign policy and on the crime bill, the '94 crime bill is something he shepherded and his extraordinary ability to deal with senate repub

that the obama administration is making a push on early childhood administration. if you can do that in a big way is the single best investment we can make. obviously immigration reform is something on the table that gets talked about. immigrants are incredibly important to the economy. so, if you can do that, again, it would be a huge boom to the economy. one of the questions, in terms of a better growth pattern, whether we can get out of the deficit conversation. one smart thing republicans have done here is enforcing it to be an endless series of self-endeuced crises. there's no other agenda. it sucks up all of washington. >> that's the problem with the three month extension. the republicans blinking and suggesting i want to fight this debt ceiling on this debt ceiling front, which would be good. they are going to keep us going every three months. we never get around to talking about the larger economic question. >> i don't want to have that conversation in the context of the three-month debt ceiling deals. if we are going talk entitlements, is there room to push on the entitlements and sugges

what may or may not happen in the middle east but it seems pretty clear the obama administration is moving more towards a strategy and tactics, a smaller footprint in the middle east, right, less intervention oriented and more strategic. if you look at the selections for his defense team, he's interested in prosecuting the war on terror in a very different way. at the end of the day, i hope the middle east works some of its issues out without a lot of u.s. intervention, but we can't predict what may or may not happen in the next four years in that region of the world. >> interesting because robert gibbs echos the sentiments james is sharing with regard to the time this president has. and robert says a year and a half at best to get something actually accomplished. it's sort of a myth when a president is re-elected. four more years. you hear the chants of people. not so much. >> two max i would think. >> i think probably the biggest potential disaster would be a terrorist attack in this country. why it hasn't happened since 9/11, i don't know. >> welet's hope it's vigilance. >> i

or hillary clinton or president obama, or any one of them in the administration is to mislead, to actively try to prevent false facts about what happened in benghazi. and no one has ever come close to suggesting any kind of motive. >> no, i think that is absolutely right. hillary clinton demonstrated what a professional she is by saying she absolutely takes responsibility. and with the review board's work, she has gone to sort of look through this question of what ought to be a direct reporting of crises up to the secretary level. but also what has not received as much attention, she is warning there are other facilities out there today. very true on the day the tragedy occurred. people died, ambassador stevens and three other great americans died in this conflict. and we today have under-resourced defenses for other facilities. and she said we need to fix this. and those members of the gop who were launching the attacks on her, some of them have been part of the process of trying to undermine diplomacy of the state department for years. and this is time to actually step up and resource th
as opposed to obama the administration. and so what happens, certainly in black america, is that people look at this guy and they say, you know, we're really proud. he's under attack, whatever. we don't look at that there is an administration. we're not dealing with augustus caesar but with an administration. >> or moses. as such this administration as my colleagues point out will be responsive to pressure. within black america. we have to be self-critical. it wasn't that people were we luck tant. people like tavares smiley and cornell who raised criticisms, you can take issue with how they raised it, were demonized. people that started raising criticisms and pointing at the administration and saying this administration can and should go further were demonized. they weren't pointing to the administration but to the man. this is where i think there is great confusion. i don't even think the president views himself as sort of standing alone on some altar. i think he needs the pressure. in fact i think he wants that pressure from the outside because he wants to have sort of a stronger policy be
" interview in which mcchrystal slammed obama and members of the administration, he was forced to resign. he said he did not end as he would have wished. today he says he has moved on with his life and is now free to speak his mind. >> afghanistan is hard. it's always been hard. if you study their history, it's never anything but complex and difficult. >> i spent a career carrying typically an m-16 and later an m-4 carbine. i personally don't think there is any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets, and particularly in and around the schools in america. i like the fact that chuck hagel has had his feet in the mud as a soldier. i like the fact that he's had a lot of background. >> joining me now is the former top commander in afghanistan, retired general stanley mcchrystal. he has a brand-new memoir called "my share of the task." general, nice to see you. >> good to see you, chuck. >> we have heard you on a number of topics. it was interesting on the assault weapon. i want to start with what's going on in north africa and mali. and i know you know about as much as we do when it comes
's put him if a little perspective politically. kerry served as president obama's mock debate partner during his re-election campaign. but he has pressured the administration at times urging the white house last year to speed up with the draul of u.s. troops from afghanistan. kerry was also influential in the administration's decision to intervene in libya. in case you forgot from his 2004 bid for the white house, he is one of the wealthiest members of the senate. he and wife teresa, heir to the heinz ketchup fortune are worth $180 million with a wide range of investments. in a letter to the state department legal adviser, kerry said he will divest any holdings that could be a conflict of interest within 90 days of being confirmed. he'll be introduced to day about the the current secretary hillary clinton. >>> today's appearance expected to take on a much different tone than the tough questioning she faced yesterday about the deadly attack against the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going
instead of barack obama being sworn in again yesterday, the romney/ryan administration would have done everything they could to overturn roe versus wade. and that means that if there were a vacancy on the supreme court, any romney nominee to the supreme court realistically could be expected to be a surefire bet to vote to overturn that 40-year-old decision. when president obama leaned over to hug the rather fierce but rather small figure of 79-year-old supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg yesterday at the capitol luncheon that was filled with all the washington vips, and president obama had that moment with ruth bader ginsburg, that physical contact, that hug between that particular justice and this particular president was a very real manifestation of the consequences of this election we just had. today outside the supreme court, as they do every year on the anniversary of roe, anti-abortion groups protested, expressing their view that it should be illegal to get an abortion in this country. there were also counter protests. people and groups supporting the decision defending abo
two, the lowest since the eisenhower administration. >> i don't think ike liked natural balls anymore than president obama. >> do you like natural balls? >> no. they're miserable. >> there's another tradition i think we started here, the natural hangover coverage at our favorite watering hole. another fantastic crowd, hi, everybody! what are you doing awake? ion what to say. it's packed, the other room, too. >> i know. >> they are drinking like fish. >> i know. they are drunk already. of course, if you're a conservative this morning, you really want to be drinking and drinking hard. it's tuesday, january 22nd. with us on set we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle and msnbc political analyst and former chairman of the republican national party when there was a republican national party and al hunt and anchor for world news, america katty kay. the reviews are in. >> the reviews are in. >> it was a liberal speech for a liberal constituency. the left is saying that, the center is saying that and the right is saying that. the only thing i've seen all week since being here any progressive
. >> that's sort of the administration beyond the party. e.j. >> what you are seeing from obama is someone who is willing now to say right up front this is what i want, and then let's deal. there's a lot of talk that the assault weapons ban can't get enough votes. he didn't say i should take that out of my plan as a concession to the other side. i want to put it in there, and let's negotiate it. maybe if i can't get that, i'll get everything else. the other point is he -- during the campaign in 2008, it may have been as early as 2007, he liked comparing himself to railroad. what's significant about what michael said is reagan wasn't just a guy who had eight years in mind. he wanted to build a long conservative ascend yancey, and what obama has in mind is i won't get everything done in these four years. i may have a republican house the entire time, but i can begin to build a movement and support for a set of ideas the way ronald reagan did so we can have more victories down the line. >> that's what keeps michael steel up at night. we have to leave it there for now. this is a live look at t
. >> in the looming debt ceiling headline and reshuffling the cabinet president obama's second term is front loaded with potential standoffs with the divided congress. mary madeline serveed in three republican administrations -- reagan, george h.w. bush and george w. bush, and also a counselor to former vice president dick cheney. good to see you. mary, happy new year. >> happy new year to you. thanks for having me. >> well, you have been through this before, and you have seen the risks, the perils of second terms. looking at it from afar, from outside the beltway, what are the big challenges that you think president obama has to be concerned about? >> every term it has been exacerbating a lot of the president's weaknesses. if he wants to get along, if he wants to make some progress with republicans, he has to get be less self-righteous. that could be played earlier. he keeps presenting these false choices that it's either getting -- you're either political, you want an a from the nra or you want safe school, safe children. if you have an opposite view, an opposing view, you can't get to the table
